2014 in review – My First Year

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 6,800 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.

Have You Been to The Neighborhood?

No? Well it’s not too late and now is the perfect time as many talented artists are being showcased together in the Season ending award series.

It’s the kind of place where all sorts of talent and magic are performed.   I was lucky and wandered into The Neighborhood in 2014, and then was personally invited by the multi-talented Kendall Pearson to join an Original Series over the summer, which was both terrifying and exciting at the same time.  Now, I can say that The Neighborhood is an environment that fosters a community of comradery and offers support – I am not afraid. However,  I am grateful for the opportunities in 2014 to flex my creative muscle and contribute, and I look forward to more adventures in 2015 together.

Cosmic Musicology: If You’re Happy And You Know It

Okay it’s been a while since I’ve set it to shuffle and played Cosmic Musicology with Steve and I’m mostly happy, so here we go.

What makes me laugh? Heresy, Nine Inch Nails

Comments: Never trust “heresy” it’s worse than ASSuming.

What makes me cry? Breathe Me, Sia

Comments: The lyrics of this tune are submerged in melancholy and the tone and tempo is so depressing, it’s hard not to cry when listening to this song.   But it is pretty great to listen to when you want to have a pity party.

What makes me mad? Missing Pieces, Jack White

Comments: This is truth! I hate missing pieces, ingredients and people.

It looks like the music Gods were looking down upon me today as everything makes perfect sense and I’m glad I played. Now, it’s your turn let’s see what’s hidden in your musical stars… For complete instructions visit Cosmic Musicology with Steve (link above) and if you want to listen to my other songs, just click the title links.

The Wizard



Bright shimmering lights
Cast from high in the sky
While taking in the sights
Guess what it was I spied

Without any warning
The Wizard walked by
It was a great morning
I believed I could fly

“Never talking
Just keeps walking
Spreading his magic”

Always at my side
Bracing my spirit
Pushing my strides
Beyond my limits

Cool wind relieves
My heated cheeks
I’m starting to believe
Yet, he never speaks

“Never talking
Just keeps walking
Spreading his magic”

Along the path we go
Feathers drift around
Together we do stroll
Covering vast ground

~During today’s walk I was inspired by The Wizard, Black Sabbath
